If this doesn't make you want to join in on, or organize a walk this year....

S.Central, PA (York area)
Ellwood City, PA
Sand Diego, CA
Dallas/Fort Worth, TX

Minneapolis area, MN
Kamloops, B.C., Canada
Vancouver, B.C., Canada
Cobden, Ontario, Canada
--Added 2/23@ 9:17pm: Sandston, VA
And possible walks in:
Huntington Beach, CA
"your location here"
It looks like a lot of walks, but we have well over 5,000 registered members on our site.
I do this in honor of the lost....the precious babies, the vibrant mothers, those yet to become pregnant and experience PE/HELLP, the emotional and financial losses, the loss of inoccence. THERE IS HOPE!
But we need your help. We need help in funding research and raising awareness, so that one day we can put the Preeclampsia Foundation out of business.
Please consider joining or hosting a walk in your area. It doesn't have to be fancy or elaborate. It can be as simple as friends and family strolling through the park. Our WI walks started with one members family and grew to 30 people, and then last year to 71 people whom raised over $9,500, and whom were visable to aproximately 10,000 passing vehicles. And this year we will have 2 walks in WI. Most of us started small.
Email me if you'd like to learn how to host your own walk: Kara.Boeldt@preeclampsia.org
We will be rolling out our websites soon.
